presidential overreach in second terms. we are very cautious about that. on the other hand, i didn't get re-elected just to bask in re-election. >> michael, he does not sound like he is going to be basking in much of anything other than -- >> no sign of it. >> the torrent of hate mail and support from some corners. i wonder on the eve of this inauguration whether -- what do you think of the to do list that the president has, and to put it in some context for us. we know he has limited -- a fairly limited amount of time to get this done. is this a little ambitious? is the roster too much? >> probably not, but you have to remember what his experience was at the beginning of the first term zoosh right. >> most presidents can come in and people will say what are your priorities and here's my list. obama had so many things coming at him from every single direction that this is in a way almost like a first term. a person coming in for the first time, you know, giving us a little bit of an idea of what he would like to do. sure. his list is much too ambitious. he knows that. most second term presidents, a
this being a triptic, which was the election night speech and the inaugural speech, and now we have the state of the union. what do we expect from that in terms of how aor specific on the policy that he gestured towards yesterday. >> i think he has to keep up this pressure going forward, and i think the real question i think we'll be looking for tea leaves in the state of the union address to what extent does he want to keep these as issues and continue building momentum. he believes coming out of the 2012 election that there is an emerging majority that will only get stronger going forward, and he talked to the white house. they talk about what they can get done in the next two years. the next four years. our work will not be done here. >> the work begins anew. >> the work will continue after me. so on an issue like global warming, there is not some big legislative package coming this year on global warming. they don't even have democratic votes for that. what obama is doing is seeding the ground, beginning the discussion to kind of shift the popular perception of global warming, and that is
, the dow has been up 600 points since election day, and we have seen a very tumultous time in terms of talking about the u.s. economy and certain folks wanting to perhaps hold it hostage. what is that -- what is that counter indication? what does that mean? >>. >> here's the good news. the good news is i think a lot of executives now have decided that they're actually just going to have to live with fiscal cliffs. we're going to have a series of them, and that this is the new normal, as you would say, and that they're just -- it's like the weather. now maybe it's raining, maybe it's not, but we'll have to live with, it and to the extent there's more confidence, i think it's sort of -- there's been a come to jesus moment that this is sort of how it's going to be. whether that's the right thing or wrong thing, i don't know. also, that there seems to be a lot more support here in europe for the economy and a sense that things are actually getting better, a sense that maybe austerity doesn't work, which is a real shift, and, by the way, is a real shift in terms of how republicans are go
members, and what our elected officials are doing about it. it is going to be up to us, the american public, to close that disconnect. >> republicans seem intent on digging in their heels while president obama is back to the strategy of enlisting the american people to move policy. at least the deja vu is happening on both sides of the aisle. glen thrush, animal of washington, denizan of the beltway. actually -- >> not actually. >> as is usual, you have a really interesting piece in politico today talking about the breaking of the obama role. there was the breaking of the hastert rule. you say, and i will read to you your own words -- >> i love this part. >> this is the best sort of awkward, and also semi-embarrassing and charming part of the show. democrats have jokingly referred to what they call the obama rule enshrining the president's practice of not forcing legislative action on anything no matter how noble that can't pass both houses. he now appears willing to burn political capital by pressuring senate democrats to vote for a measure that is likely to die in the house. a symb
for the republican party, everybody's been saying after the election, maybe they can get it together, circle the wagons, come up with a new position, new policies. >> this gives them more time to work on this. i don't have any ideas for them on that, i got to tell you. good luck. >> luke, how much -- i mean, we played that sound from rush limbaugh, rush limbaugh is the mayor of planet crazy, but at the same time, he does speak for -- you know this, house caucus, there are people, yesterday mo brooks plans to oppose this, he has a serious problem on his hands. to what degree are they going to be placated or feel they need to put party or country before primary? >> that doesn't apply to these folks. we say to the term "chuckle heads" sort of in a joking manner, but that's what they are referred to now. this apocalyptic group, which will not move forward on anything, and because the margins are smaller now, you see that in the house of representatives. what i find fascinating is the democrats' ability to hold their members and say, look, let's try and splinter the house gop. let's try and make
